The page for Tuesday, March 26th says:
At office 5:50 A.M. Mr. Moore off to Quasamambi Mine. Work on my postings - done fair work. Manuel Edwards quitting. I understand men are gradually preparing trying to get paid and then off to work at Uimbi. Young Moore reads much of the day. The only snake I've seen here was brought to me to bury - 9 feet long. Weather pleasant at 94°. Raid by Ants. Chase and eat all roaches - then go back to the earth again. Much fun watching the ants land on the roaches legs. Say, that snakes can- not fast enough to keep clear of ants when they come from the ground. Sign of very wet weather - Whew! What that must be. Boy comforting to me. Pinochle at nigth. Stranger in town from Uimbi. Both cook & watchman inform me at my house at night. Mr. A. L. Moore sends word to Mr. D.C. Stapleton.
